Religion and secularism in France: see FRANCE.FR

France, religion, secularism, laïcité (laicity), france.frThis blog should have advertised earlier about this website. But better late than never!

As 2014 just began, let's emphasize the great value of France.fr, officially launched in 2010.

France.fr is the multilingual website of reference about France, intended for the international general public. Religion and secularism topics are part of it, as one can check here (link).

Atheism and Secularism: more and more studied

europe,france,atheism,secularism,approching religion,religioscopeFor quite a long time, atheism and secularism were understudied. Not anymore.

While Religioscope devoted a big article in French on this issue this year, a new review devoted to these topics just appeared in 2012: its name is Secularism and non religion

Last but not least, let's remind the very interesting issue of the open access e-journal Approching religion (vol 2, n°1, 2012). Theme  "The New Visibility of Atheism in Europe".

BBC page on French laïcité (laicity, secularism)

arton231.jpgI have recently discovered an interesting BBC page about French laïcité (particuliar French way to deal with Secularism). 

 

Here is the link: BBC page on French Laïcité (secularism).

This page rightly emphasizes the importance of French History:

"Because of past precedent it is very easy for the French to interpret any strong religious views as a direct threat to their freedom and way of life".
